The Punisher - Season 2 Wrapup

The Romanoffs - 108 - The One That Holds Everyt...
Amazon Prime's The Romanoffs arrives at the finish line in "The One That Holds Everything". If you were hoping that this would be the one that really brings into focus Weiner's thesis for The Romanoffs, you're probably walking away...
49 min
The Romanoffs - 107 - End of the Line
This, by our estimation, is the second best episode of Amazon Prime's The Romanoffs, but unfortunately, that's not saying much about "End of the Line". It features fairly engaging material involving a couple desperate to have a child engaging in...
47 min
The Romanoffs - 106 - Panorama
Jim and A.Ron think this latest episode of Amazon's The Romanoffs, "Panorama" is a mess. At best, it's a mildly interesting yet gorgeous travelogue for Mexico City. At worst, it's a poorly, written, directed, acted, and edited mess that seems to have...
41 min
The Deuce - 209 - Inside the Pretend
HBO's The Deuce wrapped up it's second season in fine style, with the finale episode "Inside the Pretend". Simon and Pelecanos did an admirable job putting all their players in position to make the jump to the 80's. The pimps seem on the wane, the...
75 min
The Romanoffs - 105 - Bright and High Circle
The fifth episode of Amazon's The Romanoffs has something to say, but we're not sure what it is, if it's worth saying, and if Matthew Weiner is the right spokesperson for the message, which seems to be; the worst thing you can be accused of...

The Deuce - 208 - Nobody Has to Get Hurt
Jim and A.Ron are here to gush about the penultimate episode of this season's The Deuce, "Nobody Has to Get Hurt". Of course, that means that someone will have to. The person who gets the hammer felt shocking and also inevitable in...
83 min
The Romanoffs - 104 - Expectations
Jim and A.Ron have a split decision on the forth episode of Amazon's The Romanoffs, "Expectations". A.Ron found it pointless and borderline unwatchable, where Jim was drawn into the human element of Amanda Peet's Julia struggling to deal with a secret...
56 min
The Deuce - 207 - The Feminism Part
Jim and I checked out the latest episode of HBO's The Deuce, "The Feminism Part", and boy, just a lot happened. There's mob money, murder, attempted murder, betrayals, breakups, Bobby's kid lost his virginity! The stakes can be as low as Vince losing...
71 min
The Romanoffs - 103 - House of Special Purpose
Jim and I watched an unexpectedly spooky episode of Matthew Weiner's The Romanoffs, "House of Special Purpose". Starring Christina Hendricks, Jack Huston, and Isabelle Huppert, it's a tale that asks us whether we believe in ghosts or if one or perhaps...
66 min
The Deuce - 206 - We're All Beasts
A.Ron and Jim blow all the doors down on the latest episode of HBO's The Deuce, "We're All Beasts". It provokes a lot of meta discussion about progressive politics, America's long lost battle against vice, and offensive analogies. We also talk about...

The Deuce - 203 - Seven-Fifty
HBO's The Deuce moves out the LaLa land in the latest episode, "Seven-Fifty". The title reminds us that even people that we think of as "good" are capable of terrible exploitation in this world, a reminder that Simon and Pecalanos like to give us...

Sharp Objects Ep. 4 – Ripe
Jim and A.Ron continue to focus on HBO’s Sharp Objects, with a deep dive on the fourth episode, “Ripe”. Of course, Adora is just The Worst, but we see hints that the crazy awfulness of her family didn’t start with her. Who knows how...
71 min
Sharp Objects Ep. 3 – Fix
This week’s episode of Sharp Objects, “Fix”, is rough to watch. Filled with painful encounters with family, self-harm, and suicide, it is bleak and yet remains engaging and thoughtful as the camera captures the horrific events without...

Sharp Objects Ep. 2 – Dirt
We’re back for more discussion of HBO’s miniseries, Sharp Objects, discussing the second episode, “Dirt”. But it turns out we can’t resist the siren call of discussing “all of television” as we do a deeper dive than is truly...
